Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is very important for photographers. Any homepage that you use needs to have some text on it that will help you rank. Make sure that that text is not just a bunch of keywords strung together to make a paragraph. That is called keyword stuffing and can count against you in your efforts to rank high.
